I don't think it's would be a good place. gnome.org is about one project
- GNOME. GNU Midnight Commander is not a part of GNOME as of now. They
already host our mailing lists and the CVS. I don't want to ask for more,
knowing that GNOME is a non-commercial entity and that they are not
exactly in the business of promoting free software in general.
I think GNU or Red Hat would be a better place. I believe we have a
choice between following systems:
1) gnatsweb (http://sources.redhat.com/cgi-bin/gnatsweb.pl). It's older
than Bugzilla, but it's used on such large projects as gcc.
2) BugCommunicator (http://bugcomm.enbug.org/), which is in the early
stages of development, but is already used for GNU GRUB. I believe it's
going to be a replacement for gnatsweb, but I'm not sure about that.
3) Bug tracker on savannah.gnu.org. Example of a project with Bug tracker
The later will require to register mc as a project on savannah.gnu.org.
I don't know if I'll have to move CVS there. I'd like to avoid it, at
least at this point. I'm copying this e-mail to Mathieu Roy, who
hopefully knows better and can give us an informed advice.
